Covid-19 has required some changes for the time being.
For the month of August we are going to try a different format – on some days we will go visual and offer a selection of the very best NYCity Instagram photos or YouTube videos. Some days you will find “the Nifty Nine”, all the NYC news you need to start your day, or the Top Online Travel Forums with NYC info. On other days we will offer “Top 10 Corona Culture,” updated info and video especially suited to these difficult times.
We hope you will come back often to see what’s cooking here.
